1993 Alpina (BMW) B3 3.0 Touring station wagon
A 3.0 litre engine with 250 bhp enabled the B3 (based on the E36 BMW) to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 6.1 seconds, with a top speed of 255 km/h. The B3 had the usual Alpina changes - big brakes, Bilstein gas pressure shocks, Alpina wheels and so on.  This car was also available with the Switch-tronic transmission (a Formula-1 style transmission where you change gears with buttons in the steering wheel).
